Well, leaving aside the issue of how TeX might "forbid"
such things (would it still be TeX if it did this ?),
how then can the user specify with absolute certainty
that it is /his/ "MyTeXlib[.tex]" that he wishes to
reference, rather than simply the first file of that
name found in TeX's search path ?
